Sketch Saturday and Forever Friends Challenges .................




This week over at Sketch Saturday the challenge is to choose any previous sketch, so I have chosen Sketch 28. This is a new stamp that I got for Christmas from my sister and the papers are also Forever Friends from my sis, she always buys me great presents!

I also decided to decorate to my envelope to match my card. As I coloured the image in promarkers I put a piece of card inside the envelope to stop the markers bleeding through to the other side of the envelope. I am quite pleased with how this card and envelope turned out.
I am also entering this card into the Forever Friends Challenge who have an open theme this week.

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. We had a lovely time with it being Grace's first Christmas, I think I must have took a million pictures! I just have to start working on the scrapbook pages now!

Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment if you have time.

Hugs Lynsey:)

Materials:
Image - Forever Friends
Papers - Forever Friends
Flowers and ribbon from stash.
